Description

It was one of the most gripping murder mysteries in Winnipeg’s history; a case that many believed would never be solved.

But thanks to the modern miracle of scientific analysis – combined with a dedicated police service that refused to give up hope – Candace Derksen’s killer was finally brought to justice.

Exactly 26 years to the day her frozen body was found in a shed, Candace’s accused killer went to trial. Ultimately, jurors found Mark Edward Grant guilty of second degree murder following three days of deliberations.

This is a story about a family’s loss, a community’s sense of peace betrayed, a seeming never-ending search for answers amidst a stream of rumours, and an underlying message about never giving up hope.

“well-written, organized, and comprehensive”  – Wilma Derksen

“Journey for Justice is an important addition to the library of books about the city’s history.” – Lesley Hughes, The Winnipeg Free Press.

“[McIntyre] is worth reading to find out what happens on these voyages into conflict and casualty from the absurd to the bizarre to the horrific, and from the sad to the unlucky.  Mike on Crime is an easy waltz through human weakness — it is fact without puffery.” – Winnipeg Free Press
